I am too easily swayed by Capitalist travel photo essays
I didn't check the mail yesterday and I doubt anything's come that isn't a bill. Lester is in the living room practicing some new sounds, and I'm eating boiled eggs and toast because I don't want to use up all the milk.

The folks on Howell Mountain supposedly do right by the grape-eating bears in the region, so I'll look for a bottle from one of their vinyards the next time I'm on the market.
In "Far Papua," the papuan province of Indonesia, there was an anti Indonesian demonstration. Finally, news from the PNG western highlands is, as usual, not good.
And this makes me want to go to Uzbekistan all the more.
